ANAB (previously ANSI) grants A17.1-certification to Liftinstituut

In March 2021, the scope of the ANAB* accreditation of Liftinstituut was extended. In addition to product certifications based on the ASME A17.7/CSA B44.7 performance based code, the Accredited Elevator/Escalator Certification Organization (AECO) Liftinstituut may now perform product certifications in North America on the basis of the ASME A17.1/CSA B44 prescriptive code. This will enable Liftinstituut to improve its services to all players in the sector of lifts and lift components.

Good news for clients

Liftinstituut Director John van Vliet says: ‘We are proud to support our clients not only with the Certificate of Conformance, but also with the Certificate of Compliance of the ASME A17.1 standard. This is good news for our clients in the US and Canada, as well as for clients who export or want to export to North America. We hope that the extension of our accreditation scope will convince more producers of lifts and lift components of the benefits of our global services and network.’
